. there is a disadvantage to a piecemeal bill, if you pass, for example, issues for educated people to get a visa, and they're taking care of, you lose a certain amount of support for the other issues. i do not think we should decide that. i think the senator is doing a great service by raising this issue. i think our colleagues at this meeting, i met this morning with the person -- he and i actually talk a lot. i believe we should move forward on all of the arrangements so that the hill will develop an understanding about all of these issues and finally decide whether they will do it in one, too, or three pieces. that is the least of our worry. the fact is they do it. we will continue to talk about a comprehensive bill. >> i am delighted that senator rubio is helping folks take the issue of immigration reform as seriously as he is taking it. he is providing leadership on that and we are appreciative. i think it is great to see movement on both sides of the aisle. whether or not it is comprehensive or individual pieces is to be determined by leadership in the house and senate in consultation with the presi

. this is renowned author, educator and political activist angela davis who spoke last night, founder of the group critical resistance, a grassroots effort to in the prison industrial complex. davis voiced support for president obama, the said much work needs to be done. >> let me say this time around we cannot subordinate our aspirations and our hopes to presidential the agendas. our passionate support for president barack obama and it is wonderful that we can say for the second time, president barack obama, and we support him and are passionate about that support. but that support should also be expressed in our determination to raise issues that have largely been ignored or not appropriately addressed by the administration. and let me say that we are aware that we should be celebrating, critically celebrating the 150th anniversary of the emancipation proclamation. [applause] there should be massive celebrations this year. what has happened other than the film "lincoln"? and of course with 2.5 million people behind bars today, the prison system, the immigrant detention system are terrible remain
for education. >> absolutely. >> rose: stupd for women, even though she was 13413. >> sure. i think she was more effective than practically any other military operation, even, in how she gathered the sentiments and the emotions and just all pack stains, almost, unanimously, all pakistanies other than barring one or two sort of fringe elements who like to believe this to be a conspiracy. and she presented it in a very simple wayment she presented, i'm not saying-- when i say presented mi saying considered, presented it in a simple way. >> by her own personal actions. >> absolutely it was the malawa, pakistan, why a 14-year-old had the guts to stand up for her right to education. and the pakistan of the people who attacked her, okay, who felt threatened by a 14-year-old ability to stand up for her right today case so you can imagine what mind-set. so i therefore believe that any political party, any political leader or anyone in pakistan who increasesed ideaological space for these people to be able to operate isnot, you know, looking in pakistan's national interest. is not serious about sort of d
to affordable housing and quality education. senator schumer invited him to open the luncheon with a prayer in recognition of his long history of service. >> and i would, if i would just really quick, um, this doesn't speak specifically to the hispanic-american community, but, um, in shuffling my notes i did miss the fact we wanted to make sure that everyone knew that merely evers williams who is the widow of med garre evers will also be doing the invocations to the official event. and, again, this really ties into the fact that this is an event that looks back at the history of our country as well as forward to where the president wants to take us as a country. so we think that'll be a very nice way to open the event and a nice nod towards the civil rights movement and the part it's played not only in the president's life, but also in the country's life. >> with why don't we go to this side over here. sir? >> [inaudible] just want to know -- [inaudible] coming, and if there is a list for us and why don't we see that.

into a good paying career. charles: right. >> i believe they strongly education is a great equalizer, but you've got to have a competitive tax system. charles: governor, obviously we're going to be watching it closely and it's a bold move that i think a lot of other states are going to follow. thank you for your time. >> thank you. charles: back to nicole, we've got to talk about the gun stocks from a different ankle. outdoor retailer, cabella, how is that doing? >> check out cabela, it's not a story frequent the minute i say it, the guys on wall street, hunting, fishing and gun sales as well. accounts for 10% of revenue. here is is a look today. up 1% today. of course they've been seeing the lines out the door over there. the stock has doubled in the last 52 weeks, about almost 100% the last 52-week, a nice one-week chart and we talked about smith & wesson and sturm ruger, you can see cabellas a big seller. charles: after sandy hook, stopped selling assault weapons, but that's a big play on this whole angle. we've got more fallout for lance armstrong, believe it or not, just two headlines to
. government does public safety. it does education. it does programs for the children, for the elderly. so what you refrench in government you cut the good which in many respects is a bad. i mean is there a lesson here for the national government and the national politician? >> well, the lesson is one that you've got to make tough choices. you have to live within your means. that means you have to not do everything you want to. but you also have to raise more money. we did raise a tax on all citizens called the sales tax, a quarter of a cent. and we raised the tax on individuals who make more than $250,000 or couples who make more than $500,000. so that's what we did. there's no doubt america is overcommitted. we're overcommitted abroad with our several hundred drid military installations. we're overcommitted in our borrowing 40 cents for every dollar. >> reporter: answer me a question about the ideology and the gridlock between republican and democrats? it seems to be parallel to what's going on in the united states' congress at the same time. >> well, in california through the initiative proc

with what you found on the ground? >> no. that's a disgusting statement. they've not been educated -- they've not been executed with surgical precision although maybe a terrible hack surgeon if that's your definition. but there are numerous people, numerous incidents of absolutely outrageous civilian casualties and the other thing that we must understand is even if the drones are technically accurate and there may be some question about that how are they getting the information as to who to attack with drones? well they're ex-pakistani military are bribing people in the pro inses to give them names and -- provinces and that's how and who the drones are being directed at. just like in guantanamo, people are turning in folks who they have grudges with or who are their enemies. we must think about that. these incredible instruments flying from the sky attacking and killing are based on a neighbor turning in someone in another village because they have a drudge. >> john: bribes leading to bad intel are all too familiar in this long and destructive conflict. 20 seconds left. do you think sir th

, in the past, made available educational health services for refugees. it's only very recently that they've begun to build camps for the syrian refugees. >> what happens to all of these people? do they stay in other countries? is there a likelihood, a possibility that they can go back home to syria? >> well, we met with a great many of them and they have really agonizing stories about the situation back in their home country of targeted killings, abductions and terror, of sexual violations, kids who witnessed family members being killed. and yet inspite of that they very much express a desire to go back to syria, but the fact is they have no place to go back to, probably won't for some time. so we're talking about a long-term humanitarian emergency among the refugee communities outside of syria and even greater crisis inside syria, where there are over 2 million people displaced, another 2 million who have no food, shelter, way of coping with winter there. so the needs are enormous. the neighbors of syria have done a commendable job in extending hospitality to those who came across the b
